Coward_Token on Phage: That Which is Not Dead

You probably already know but Command Beacon & Netherborn Altar can also be used to not lose to Phage's ETB

I noticed Netherborn Altar would bring Skullbriar back to your hand and remove his counters. Might wanna axe that

RNR_Gaming on Tetzimoc as a commander?

Not every card is meant to be for commander. There are a lot of hoops to jump through to make make his ability moderately relevant but in black there are much better options if you just care about colors. It would probably play out very similar to Haakon, Stromgald Scourge or a Phage the Untouchable deck. Command Beacon and Netherborn Altar become your bread and butter and everything else is generic black value.

DarkHero on Tetzimoc as a commander?

Netherborn Altar among other things. This is in no way a good idea unless your just trying to meme your playgroup and get some janky plays.

That is absolutly correct and the reason why I replaced him (Solemn Simulacrum) with Netherborn Altar the moment the card was spoiled. I just hadn't updatet it yet.

Dark Ritual can be a replacement for Solemn Simulacrum. It makes the deck even faster and more competitive. As we in our playgroup don't want too fast and competitive decks, it was no replacement option for me.

Nice swaps, I looked it up (the Commander Tax thing), and it turns out that an Ikoria 2020 Cmdr precon featured this card: Netherborn Altar. Basically, you pay life instead of commander tax. Check it out if you'd like.
